My Approach to Helping

Deanna Ball is a Licensed Professional Counselor and a Licensed Chemical Dependency Counselor, with over 20 years of experience. She is passionate about working with the LGBTQ+ community as well as addiction issues. She is a Sex Therapist as well as an Anger Resolution Therapist. Deanna specializes in depression, grief, sexual health, LGBTQ+ issues, and substance abuse (addiction) issues. Deanna had two Master's degrees from Grand Canyon University, one in Professional Counseling and the other in Addiction Counseling. She is currently attending the University of Metaphysical Science and has achieved her Bachelor's in Metaphysics and has recently submitted her Master's Thesis and will soon be awarded her Master of Metaphysical Science degree. After that, she will pursue her Ph.D. in Metaphysical Science. Deanna's background in addiction has molded her to be more direct & assertive in her approach. She doesn't hold back when giving feedback. Many clients say they appreciate the fact she's direct and tell it as she sees it. She won't hold your hand, but she will walk beside you. Many counselors do not have the addiction counseling specialty, several clients do not realize the effects addiction has had in their life; as they may have been raised in that environment & have no issues with drugs/alcohol personally. If you have been affected by addiction please reach out.
